Object Name Pottery, Artifact
Description This pitcher is red with black design. However, there has been secondary oxidation of the vessel (it was burned) that has charred most of the body of the vessel where design is present. There are rim ticks and a strap handle is present. There are two zones of design, the neck and body. The body is bounded by thin lines and consists of opposed stepped broad line and hatched elements. The neck design is unbounded and consists only of broad line motifs. The handle was decorated with opposed triangles but much of its exterior is missing. It appears that little wear is present on the vessel, however the excessive heat has crazed (many small cracks) the surface, causing it to chip away. Several chips are missing from the rim. No reconstruction or restoration is apparent.
